Robert Plant

Wednesday, April 27, Fillmore Auditorium, 303-830-8497.

Most of the free world — including Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones, we hear — would probably love to see Robert Plant move past his recent O Brother, Where Art Thou? phase and get on with a full-scale reunion of (what's left of) Led Zeppelin. No dice. Ol' Bob seems to have settled nicely into the role of stately English country gentleman, and he much prefers performing rustic, old-timey Americana/bluegrass over attempting to squeal "Whole Lotta Love" in the bombastic manner it and other Zep classics deserve. So Plant returns with Band of Joy. As Led Zep diehards surely know, Band of Joy was Plant's pre-Zeppelin psychedelic-rock outfit. In many ways, with his current Band of Joy, Plant has returned to the music that inspired Led Zeppelin in the first place, and his latest explorations sound terrific. Embrace it, because the likelihood of a Zep reunion is over the hills and far away.

Huh?
Huh?

how could there be a reunion when the band's drummer John Bonham has been dead since the 1970's? Any reunion tour would be about the money - Plant knows it, Page knows it, Jones knows it, and true fans of the band know it. True fans of the band are OK with Led Zeppelin being a fond memory rather than a shameless money grab.
